Missing Northwestern Student’s Body Pulled from Chicago Harbor

The mystery of a missing Northwestern University student has been solved.

Sadly, this story does not have a happy conclusion.

Peter Salvino, a 25-year-old doctoral student, was pulled from the Diversey Harbor Tuesday evening.

Sad Days

Salvino was last seen on Sunday, having attended a party in Chicago.

He left the party early Sunday morning in the Lincoln Park area, but had not been seen since.

Authorities were pinging his phone to find a possible location, which is what led them to the Diversey Harbor, also near where Salvino was living.

This body was pulled from the water around 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

Cook County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Salvino's identity.

There was no cause of death released, but an autopsy is now scheduled to be performed.

Authorities do know that he was doing FaceTime with a friend while walking back home just after midnight Saturday night/Sunday morning.

A local eatery, The Wieners's Circle, had caught Salvino on surveillance video not long before he had disappeared.

The restaurant posted, "Ok #wienersleuths, Peter Salvino is a regular at our store and is well liked, this is so sad. We believe the picture below is of him at our store, not long before he was last heard from Saturday night. Please retweet this and help his family find Peter."

Nobody realized he was gone until he missed a meeting with his father to attend a Bears game on Sunday.

After his body was found, the family stated, "We are both shattered and relieved to report that, earlier today, we found Peter during the marine search of Diversey Harbor.

"Throughout the last three days we have been overwhelmed by the support and assistance we've received from friends, family and local residents and businesses in our search for Peter.

"We are grateful beyond measure for their diligence, without which Peter may not have been found. At this time, our family appreciates the public affording us privacy as we process our grief over this devastating loss."

As noted above, the last contact made was with a friend at 12:15 while he was walking home.

His friend called him back at 12:31 and again at 12:37 a.m. to make sure he was okay, but he never answered the phone.

Now we just need to find out what happened between 12:15 a.m. and 12:31 a.m.

Did he fall, was he pushed, was he assaulted? We will find out soon enough.
